Rise and Shine, Look That Turkey in the Eye and Say

"Hit it darlin'!" (Tom Cat Reeder, a country music dj and dear family friend from way back used to say that every Thanksgiving morning on his music broadcast. Mom would always have that turkey in the oven by the crack of dawn. (Jim says, "Yeah, and it was always dry as a bone! She always had the wrath of dad on her to get everything done!" hehe)

We woke up to the brother dressed to kill wielding those Shun knives of his like a crazed samurai. He made us all a wonderful country breakfast. Jim served country sausage, bacon and these wonderful biscuits I had ordered frozen from Williams Sonoma. The kids had freshly baked waffles. Everyone is full and content.





We moved on to starting mom's rolls. I sure hope they turn out as good as hers always were. We're in for a treat if they do.






Now the groovy gravy is on the stove cooking down for a couple of hours before the turkey pan will be "deglazed" with champagne and then added to the base gravy. I swear, my favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is bubba's mashed potatoes and gravy. I could make a meal out of just that and turkey!

Hope you're enjoying your day as well. Will keep you abreast of how things are coming along!

The gravy sounds fabulous!

And your rolls sounded less 'adventurous' than ours were this year. :-) (see my latest entry for more info).

Now onto Christmas...
